1:05 pm
prompted the government to commit to changing gun control laws my understanding is he how how the category i.v. gun license and again i prefer my advice currently is that he under the gun license was able to legally acquired the gun said he held they will give you an indication of why we need to change our gun laws the national threat level has been raised from low to high as place politicians and the public come to terms with the worst and the most shocking attack they've ever experienced older people have been gathering here. laying flowers and just standing in quiet contemplation there are a lot of questions to be answered about how this attack happened but there's a lot of grief and solidarity to be expressed under thomas' al-jazeera christchurch . robin go live to another of our correspondents are using crushers wayne hay and wayne this community this city absorbs the tragedy that happened to them
1:06 pm
not that long ago the agony of many of the families continues as so many of those who have died have yet to be identified. yes that's exactly right you mentioned in andrew's piece there the people coming here to pay tribute to leave floral tributes well it's just gone eleven o'clock at night here on saturday and still the people are coming here to do exactly that to leave flowers at the police cordon the road here that we're standing on leads down to the el nor mosque where most of the people were killed on friday but many people also just coming here to stand in silence really and reflect on what this city what this country has been through on friday you mentioned some of the victims the names haven't been officially released but certainly media in new zealand now starting to tell the stories from family members talking about the people that they feared to
1:07 pm
have lost inside those mosques talking about some of the names one of them by a brother of a young boy who is presumed to have been killed inside the el nor mosque has spoken in the media about his hatred for the people responsible for this attack or the individual a new zealand sporting representative representative as well is being reported to have been killed in this. a three year old born in kuwait was a goalkeeper for the national and provincial men's football team his family has since has been speaking about their concerns for what happened on friday as have the sons of a seventy one year old the apparently died according to the sons trying to shield someone else from being attacked inside the el nor mosque he was originally from afghanistan was very active in christchurch in the refugee community would often be
1:08 pm
seen at christchurch airport welcoming new refugees into the city not just from afghanistan but from other places as well so these stories starting to come out now about the people who feared to have been killed inside these two mosques and the prime minister herself confirming that there are children among the dead. yes that's exactly right. fear so you have been children killed inside the mosque some monk the death toll which still stands at forty nine men and women as well of the elderly and young many people still in hospital around forty people still in christchurch hospital here and some of the children that you mentioned have been airlifted to new zealand's largest city o'loghlin to a specialist children's hospital there among the people that are injured in hospital eleven are thought to be critical that is the statistics released from the
1:09 pm
hospital staff here in christchurch so certainly there is a lingering concern that that death toll could rise yet and is there a sense i mean we've had the prime minister talking about changing most definitely changing those gun laws is there a sense that life is going to change for the people of christchurch if not for the people of new zealand. well i certainly think it will this is as has been reported many times unprecedented for this country this is generally regarded as a fairly safe country as you mentioned the new zealand prime minister spoke very strongly about wanting to change the gun laws in fact he said they will be changed to toughen them up make it more difficult for people to get their hands on simian automatic weapons more difficult if not impossible to buy those in new zealand once they change the laws and also for modifications to be made to some of these weapons to make them more deadly which appears to have been the case with some of the
1:10 pm
weapons that brinton. may have used in the attacks on friday generally the gun laws are thought to be relatively strict here anyway clearly weren't strict enough to prevent this person getting a hold of sim semiautomatic weapon so that is certainly something that she would look to change even the police here martine when they're generally on patrol on the streets of new zealand do not carry weapons so gun violence is very rare in new zealand but certainly there is a sense that the unprecedented scale of what we saw unfold on friday will certainly change this country and certainly the city of christchurch for over wayne hay live in christchurch thank you very much indeed well as you've been hearing the main suspect in all of this comes from australia and yara boom elam has more now from the city where he grew up it's grafton it's in new south wales. this is
1:11 pm
a community in shock tyrant's spent the first twenty years of his life in grafton it's a sleepy regional town in country new south wales and we spoke with the arch dane of the anglican church here and he said that. the community can't believe that one of their own could be involved in an attack like this distressed parishioners have been calling in all day on saturday asking what it is they can do about the attack the we also spoke with the deputy mayor and he says that this community is one that has fallen on hard times recently economically with the loss of industry and now has to contend with the fact that is going to be associated with the attack in christ church on sunday there will be a number of church services where the community will come together will be a lot of soul searching but also a show of support for the victims in christchurch. well the new zealand prime minister has received messages of condolence for many world leaders
1:12 pm
including the us president donald trump i spoke with donald trump this morning he sought to costa rica he very much wish for his condolences to be passed on to new zealand he asked for support the united states could spread wide my message was sympathy and love for all muslim communities but the president played down the threat posed by white supremacists i think it's a small group of people that have very very serious problems i guess if you look at what happened in new zealand perhaps that's a case i don't know enough about it yet they're just learning about the person and the people involved but it's certainly a terrible thing terrible thing. and as a sidebar really australia has denied a british far right commentator visa following his comments about the new zealand
1:13 pm
attacks my young novelist blamed the shootings on new zealand's tolerance of islam calling it a barbaric alien religious culture immigration minister david coleman said his presence would ferment hatred and division coleman had approved the visa just last week despite objections by the home affairs department right now we can talk to joseph lombardi's professor of islamic studies at haven't been wholly for university he's here on set with me thank you very much indeed for joining us i'm just wondering what your thoughts are about the prevalence also it would appear all of this far writes this white supremacist ideology and whether you think that perhaps you with or it is have neglected it in preference of pursuing those that they they suspect of of being radicalized and being islamic one fortunately authorities have done more for more than just because they've actually tried to downplay it and ignore it we've had the recent comments from donald trump and
1:14 pm
others whom you just referred to try to say that this is actually not a problem but then we look at the manifesto of the shooter and of other shooters before him who clearly are invoking ethno nationalist ideologies as justification as the motivations for their acts and where does this idea of white genocide come from this idea of this replacement theory that he the main suspect in this particular instance but others as well where there propagating this idea that the white race is about to be extinguished you know in all honesty this is an idea that goes back very far we see it in the early twentieth century we see it before that and really in many ways the question is why or particular individuals radicalized by this idea ideology how do they get particle history and what can we do to counter that indeed a lot's been said. about the role assess who media of course in the propagation of
1:15 pm
this kind of this hate filled ideology but what about the role played by national and international leaders and he directly references donald trump is being as being a new new leader to maybe of the salvation to the white race there's also that to all band and others of it joe that in hungary others who are also promulgating this kind of. this kind of war talk they're almost trying to suggest that there is a war between western culture and islam yes and you even have people like representative stephen king directly refer to this replacement theory which we could really in a sense call almost the replacement theology because it's the theology of the white nationalist white supremacist movement that we must defend ourselves against these people were coming to take over and i represent the deepest threat of all which is a white person who has embraced islam and this is something that unfortunately it
1:16 pm
is now spreading because in a sense with the election of donald trump and other officials we've turned over a rock and we've seen what was underneath it and he's allowing this to spread further and further people feel justified in saying this was before they felt that there was some check it's also in europe as well the rise of populism the rise of identity tarion ism as it's rather clumsy legal you know this is this is a real phenomenon which is affecting the whole continent is it wrecks it it's our gate is part of that very same trend that your voters there are many others i mean we go back to the norwegian massacre this is all over that manifesto this is a problem that threatens everyone because we see for example the synagogue in pittsburgh jews were killed we see the true church in north carolina that it was black americans who were killed and then we look at the temple. in in wisconsin oak tree was constant that it seeks or killed this is a threat to everyone so everyone who is another everyone who is another and
1:17 pm
unfortunately it's a threat to white people as well absolutely so what role then what responsibility needs to be taken by the leadership by the leadership of the western world well for one thing i think in many ways it starts with the media the media needs to take some responsibility and look at the difference in the way that this is covered if there is a terrorist attack by a muslim studies have shown it receives seven times as much coverage as a terrorist attack by a white supremacist that's an even coverage you look at the daily mail today and we have a beautiful blonde boy where did he go wrong whereas we see with the orlando shooting this horrible muslim terrorist who represents isis an american language masses doesn't it i mention again donald trump using the language of war he's talking about the central americans. posing a threat to next essential threat to the united states is an invasion he says i mean this is invoking. a war like mentality isn't it oh yes and it's the it's the
1:18 pm
whole basis of his being elected is all of these people who see they feel that there is an invasion and that he will be their leader against it but he's the exact opposite of a leader a prime minister of new zealand is a leader this is a person who steps up in the middle of strife donald trump has proven himself to be somebody who falls to the occasion of the rhizomes we. reference the role of the media as well a lot as i mentioned before has been made of the fact that social networks now are instantaneous that this man this perpetrator was able to stream live the atrocity i think for about seventeen minutes it was up on facebook what role then should the big tech companies that is a responsible for a interconnected lives today what role should they play and now they able to harness the technology in order to see. thought that kind of thing being shown well i can say that given the amount of posts that we've been able to
1:19 pm
delete from muslims who treat for example in favor of palestinian causes and things along these lines it looks like they do have that ability but the key to fall into the trap of the media in please sing anything that they see as potentially going towards extremism on the muslim side but letting go of those things which seem to support a no nationalist movement on the other but it sounds very much as though the leadership needs to come from the politician leadership multiple democratic friends news comes from the media it needs to come from it's come from those who supervise social media there and it needs to come from academics as well as if number thank you very much indeed thank you. we've got a lot more to come on this al-jazeera news hour including after days of no power venezuelan shops begin to reopen. and months before presidential elections in argentina economic woes take center stage. and feel so on whether to expand

1:30 pm
coming out of here to the severity of the storm but i am place say the winds have died down really quite quickly you can see where the main focus for the heavy rains going to be over the next few days and land will be a major problem in coming days then i was next three days we could see a further half a meter of rainfall coming down so the wind problem has dissipated but the rays really are here to stay warm moist air continues to drift in from the mozambique channel and that's going to be the case as we go on through saturday only into sunday and beyond you can see how the same area very heavy rain will continue to central parts of mozambique pushing into the eastern half of zimbabwe as well sunday into monday that you can see how the shading chart here continues to filter in that very very heavy rain and across a similar area i'm hopeful by the time we come to monday the rain won't be quite as intense but it's still there nevertheless these heavy downpours will continue to
1:31 pm
pulse their way through so widespread flooding remains a major problem for many many days to come. the weather sponsored by countdown to. the government you support are believed to have detained maybe a million people in reeducation camps certainly not grabbing headlines in china only in a while kings of the people's republic that's probably not best just to dismiss everything as propaganda to use propaganda because you are abrasive aggressive way of addressing it maybe your son challenges chinese finance yet charles leave you wrote something critical of president xi over i said this would not be regarded well by the western press a hot head to head on al-jazeera. the ultranationalist marks connected with one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis as we doe as illegally maigret joining with the military to impose a deadly political agenda we have devoted our nation what has happened to the
1:32 pm
revenge that's one of the biggest stains on the country as a whole. as another religion this is the politics me and an unholy alliance on al-jazeera. carissa take a look at the top stories here of al-jazeera the gunman arrested after new zealand's mosque attack has been charged with murder twenty eight year old brenton tyrants didn't enter a plea nor did he fail forty nine people died in shootings at to mosques in christ church on friday. a makeshift memorial has been set up in the city to pay tribute
1:33 pm
to the victims and messages of condolence and condemnation coming in from across the world. the prime minister dan has met muslim community leaders in christchurch to offer sympathy support and reassurance she's promising tougher gun laws after a suspect and legally obtained five guns including also massive weapons. albania's opposition is taking to the streets and calling on the prime minister eddie the drama to resign they say the political system is corrupt and they want a snap election the top colt's have been closed for a year and a bid to join the european union to raise the standard of living is unlikely without a functioning justice system reports now from the capital to run a. political future is the question on people's minds as the political process moves into unchartered waters last month the opposition democratic party quit parliament and took to the
1:34 pm
streets saturday's protest is the latest event in a new political strategy that has left the country with an incomplete parliament the european union says the boycott undermines democracy the opposition says. democracy is already a sham because the government has allowed money from the drug trade to control it or it is huge amounts of money they have been able to penetrate the economy and of course they have bought elections they have bought judges and prosecutors the police oppositions in the country they have they have made it possible for members of organized crime to become members of parliament and mayors state captured by organized crime has led to an erosion of democracy the democratic party is ramping up pressure on the government ahead of local elections in june and more importantly a key decision by the european union the big question for albania is whether it'll be allowed to open membership talks with the european union in june that is its
1:35 pm
only realistic chance of raising its standard of living at the moment some fifty thousand young people are still leaving the country each year to find work abroad they join the ranks of albania is already large overseas community which sends home one and a quarter billion dollars a year that is ten percent of the economy. but the e.u. is unlikely to open talks with a country that doesn't have a functioning justice system its top courts have been closed for a year as corrupt judges a rooted out some twenty three thousand cases have piled up many of them against decisions of the ruling socialist party so what was unexpected for us was to see that members of the constitutional court did not pass the vetting process as they were a fall off not justifying their worth or some of the
1:36 pm
judges that did not pass or prosecutors that did not pass the wedding were found to have connections with. criminal organization the socialist say the courts will open again in may but that may be too late to restore transparency and political stability right we can go live now to john who is in the albanian capital to run a john psaropoulos of course and john it seems as though our baby is in a real quandary at the moment but right behind you are people supporting the opposition who've walked out of parliament given up their seats and they're refusing offers of dialogue so what's the way forward. that's right we've just the length of this protest which stretches from the central square this town to run up from scandal base to the prime minister's office that's about half a kilometer it is packed the main avenue between these two points is packed with people i estimate at least twenty thousand rather conservatively from what local
1:37 pm
journalists tell me this is a higher turnout than in the past so if anything this series of protests initiated by the democratic party is growing what people complaining about here we spoke to hundreds of people here is of course the corruption that the democratic party decries they say but they are asked for back handed in daily life by the state services for serbs is that right they say that many people here say they've lost their jobs because the democratic members of the simple things and all of this impacts of course of the economy the real economy what people take in their pockets because at the moment even those to to sickly albanian things are about five thousand dollars a year even that is really an overestimation of what most people hundreds of
1:38 pm
five hundred dollars about it's considered a very good salary so even though the figures may tell a good story about the albanian how growth has been increasing you have unemployment has been falling it's now come down to thirteen percent the fact that people don't feel they have enough money in order to live their lives that they would like to live and feel they've been made false promises and joan i mean the u.s. state department agrees with those people behind you on the street said the recent report on on human rights practices it says that there was pervasive corruption in old branches of government in albania what's the plan is there a plan that's being put in place a credible plan that perhaps the opposition can get on board with. the united states likely european union backing the judicial reform this is currently under way now and i think they are trying to do some damage control of the
1:39 pm
country's image they would like to see this reform completed the government promises the sushi of course as you see it going to be fully operational in may and that is just in time for the june local elections and for the june decision by the european council on whether to allow thing it's an open it's accessing taught everything that is happening here is ramping up towards that crucial months of june when albania is future will to certain extent be decided by whether the european union will allow it to continue on its part the session will tell it but there are still up front to measures to be taken so i think in that spirit the state department just wishes to provide context and say it's not as though there's only one group of corrupt people it is a endemic problem. with us live in the albanian capital tehran
1:40 pm
a funky. writes to bangladesh where aid agencies are now preparing for a monsoon season which could start as early as next month and then last until october that reckoned that up to two hundred thousand range of refugees could be at risk stephanie decker reports now from the camps of cuts is bizarre in southeastern bangladesh which is also one of the wettest parts of the country. john katun son helps her carry sand up to where they now live a small basic hut in the biggest refugee camp in the world we spotted her picking up sand at the bottom of a hill this she tells us is to prepare for the upcoming monsoon season only to go up the concern for us is that the water will come inside the home plus it erodes this soil around the home and it's still continuing to erode the children sometime slip and fall so we are paving the place we send almost one million rohingya
1:41 pm
refugees live here having fled me and margarine the government crackdown in august of two thousand and seventeen this will be their third monsoon season away from home one of the main concerns of the monsoon season are landslides not because many of these huts the been built on slopes and you can see the sandbags have been used here to try and hold the ground but when the rains come you will think to wrench a water pouring down the slopes many people will tell you that these hearts which are made out of bamboo interpol and dandle trance but we're told reinforcement work has taken place on vulnerable areas and a whole new campus been built with stronger homes the ground too is getting extra help these are called soil retention walls all this in an effort to prevent landslides and allow the expected deluge of water to drain of quickly. sanjeeda was recently moved to this hut and she shares the space with her husband and six
1:42 pm
children doesn't have a good deal of but a little. previous home had taught pauline which was blown away during the storm we fixed it with a double layer it was also located in all flat land but this one is on higher ground a much more protected. there are many aid agencies operating here and the size of the camps means that this is more like a city but without the resources to cope with the same number of people and last year we really created twenty six twenty six thousand refugees who are especially vulnerable and there are places. and that was a good measure this year we hope that the number much much smaller because we have strengthened. the south as here we have one more year of experience and that's why we have a kind of optimistic what is certain is that the rains will come high winds will pound these huts and the ground will turn wet and muddy but what's less certain is
1:43 pm
what will happen to all these people now living here stephanie decker in the refugee camps of cox is bizarre. the business is a slowly reopening in venezuela of the days of a nationwide electricity outage the other battle for power continues in the capital and that's between the president and the opposition leader so there's a boat report from the capital caracas. boxes of food ready to be distributed in venezuela. where the government's way of handing out subsidized food as the country struggles with the consequences of a long running crisis. because of the economic war cybernetic war or the territorial leaders that give away the boxes to the people. venezuela is recovering from a power outage that left most of the country in the dark for several days still millions of people are struggling for water we got our cast and the many other parts of the country the government used to distribute this. year every month but now they're
1:44 pm
doing it every fifteen days because of the economic crises inside there's found other means rice some flour or oil among other things many of the people we have spoken to say that it's not enough. the boxes as they are known here are the only way most venezuelans have to survive they're sold for a few cents of a dollar much cheaper if people were to get the same items in a supermarket. but just like water these days and many other things in. the boxes do not reach everyone in need. and won't be getting a clap box this month. i can't survive like this tried to see how to sustain myself my daughter is helping me but she couldn't get the clock box this month everything is extremely difficult for us these days. opposition leader still claims he's the
1:45 pm
